prposts.com - the UK public relations industry’s free jobs board for positions available and wanted – has reached a multimillion pound milestone.

“By our reckoning, the salaries on offer on prposts.com as of today come to around GBP£1.6 million combined,” said PR Press Network owner/operator Tracey Hopkin. “That’s just for the job ads that include details of the salaries on offer – there are nearly 100 ads in the database and around a third do not include salary information, but if they are in the same range as the others on offer we would guess the total would be around the two million pound mark.

“This is not the true benchmark by which we would like to measure the site’s success,” says Hopkin. “Although it’s encouraging to see all that money out there in the marketplace! On a day-to-day basis, however, we are simply delighted by the calibre of both PR agencies and recruitment companies making use of prposts.com and hope they continue to do so – we know we’ll continue to offer prposts.com as a free platform for the PR industry.”

prposts.com was launched in February this year along with partner sites newsnext.com, an editorial forward planning service; and prfinder.com, a dynamic directory of UK and global PR companies and websites. They became part of the PR Press Network in May.

The PR Press Network now offers a number of additional sites and services to the media, including ReachRadio, designed to put broadcasters in touch with providers of radio-friendly content; SimpleScout, a free location scouting service for filmmakers and photographers in the UK; and AgencyWire, a free email newsletter for UK PR professionals due to be launched in October this year.
